Clinical Training Program

The Norwalk Hospital Sleep Disorders Center is a six-bed facility regionally known as a Center of Excellence. We perform more than 1,000 sleep consultations, 1,200 polysomnograms, and 100 MSLT and MWTs per year. Our highly experienced and multidisciplinary staff provides state-of-the-art treatment for all sleep disorders, including disordered breathing, restless leg syndrome, REM behavioral disorder and narcolepsy. In addition, we offer comprehensive exposure to pediatric sleep medicine. Our Director of Pediatric Sleep Medicine evaluates infants and children of all ages at our dedicated pediatric sleep facility. Furthermore, fellows learn how to manage insomnia patients in our Insomnia Center, utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, relaxation training, pharmacotherapy and neurofeedback. Our formal curriculum places a high priority on clinical training of fellows, residents and medical students.
